Metro releases schedule information for 2017 SafeTrack surges
The City of Alexandria and DASH have been working with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) and the region’s localities to assist travelers as WMATA’s SafeTrack initiative continues.
SafeTrack’s “Safety Surges” involve long-duration of track outages for major projects in key parts of the system that will cause delays throughout the region. The City of Alexandria urges commuters to telework and use alternative ways to commute that do not involve driving alone.
This week, Metro released schedule information for the remaining SafeTrack surges between February and June 2017. Surges will resume February 11 with an 18-day surge on the Blue Line.
Major work that impacts rush-hour service had been suspended during the month of January due to the inauguration and the potential for winter weather impacts.
The SafeTrack program will conclude in late June, after which, Metro will shift to a regimen of preventive maintenance.
